'The Voice' is set to get a Sunday night results show although it won't be filmed live

'The Voice' is set to get a Sunday night results show.

The BBC One programme has already been a ratings winner during the blind audition stages - which saw coaches Sir Tom Jones,, Jessie J and Danny O'Donoghue choose hopefuls based only on their singing abilities - and show bosses have decided to capitalise on this with a results show.

However the programme will be recorded following the live 90 minute Saturday show and there are fears audience members could leak the winners before it airs the next day.

A source told The Sun newspaper: "[The names could leak because] there is a lot more twitter activity around 'The Voice'."

BBC One uses a similar method with 'Strictly Come Dancing' in order to save money.

Meanwhile, 'The Voice' and 'Britain's Got Talent' could face a clash on May 6 when the ITV1 show airs its only Sunday show as part of live finals week.

'BGT's Simon Cowell has previously made the decision to move his programme to avoid a clash with 'The Voice' after the BBC One series attracted more viewers than his ITV1 programme three weeks in a row.

'Britain's Got Talent' - which features judges Simon, Amanda Holden, Alesha Dixon and David Walliams - will now be aired on Saturdays at 8:30pm from Saturday (21.04.12) instead of its current 8pm start, which had led to a 20 minute crossover with 'The Voice'.
